Eyes on the City: Neighborhood Organizations Building Resilience

In our advocacy work over the three years since Superstorm Sandy, MAS has seen time and again that community resilience often depends on more than just official municipal resource centers. In times of great challenge, some of the most vital recovery outreach is performed by an unexpected constellation of neighborhood organizations and anchor businesses that know and serve communities year round. In commemoration of the third anniversary of Superstorm Sandy, MAS offers this short snapshot of de facto community-based resource hubs—libraries, pubs, churches, and non-profits that sprang into action on October 29, 2012, delivering supplies, support, and hope to thousands of New Yorkers. Many of these hubs were identified through MAS’s series of Community-Based Resilience Convenings this spring. Please join us in thanking these institutions for all they do to support New York’s neighborhoods on historic days and average ones. [huge_it_slider id=”3″]
